Uniform Update and More
Students may choose to wear either the regular school uniform or the PE uniform every day. The PE uniform will continue to be required on PE days. The school shoe must be a white tennis shoe, with white or light non-marking soles. The shoe itself may have colored markings, such as logos. Our uniform closet has an ample supply of uniforms. Please contact the school office at (301) 447-3161, Monday – Thursday, to set up a time to visit the closet. If you need additional PE T-shirts, they must be ordered through the front office no later than August 3. A form was mailed home with report cards or you may download it from the website.
Community, Coffee, and Conversation with Principal Kilty!
Thanks to everyone who came out for CCC with Ms. Kilty! We hope to see you at our next one in the spring!
We’ve kicked off our season of giving in a big way, thanks to our generous supporters who helped us reach our Giving Tuesday goal. But there’s still time to give a tax-deductible gift to the Annual Fund!
The Annual Fund is important for covering our operational expenses and allows us to continue to offer the most affordable tuition in Frederick and Carroll counties. We also rely on grants for many of our programs, and foundations are more apt to approve grant requests when we can demonstrate investment in our school from our faculty, staff, and parents.
One way this is measured is through participation in the Annual Giving Fund campaign. We know you sacrifice to give your child a strong education and any gift you are able to make is GREATLY appreciated! Give online and find out more about the Annual Fund.
Our next HSA Meeting is Tuesday, Dec 10 at 6:30 PM. We NEED more active parents! Please join us and become involved in planning for our school year.
Thank you to Amber Reaver for organizing a wonderful Breakfast with Santa! We’re grateful for everyone who stepped up to help us out!

Ideas for Celebrating Advent at Home
· Create a Jesse Tree to learn about and remember Jesus’s lineage
· Make an Advent Prayer or Good Deed Chain with paper and every day, tear off one link. Each link of the chain can contain a prayer or good deed to perform that day.
· Let your child choose 3 gifts to give to Toys for Tots, a homeless shelter, or other charity drive in honor of Baby Jesus
